So I just bought a new xbox and I sold my old hard drive and old xbox. I've just recovered my account and I'm redownloading all the stuff I bought on my account. When I load up the DLC will it still work or will I need to transfer the licences

The dlc downloaded on your old console will work as long as the gamertag that downloaded it on your old console is signed in to xbox live. If you ever plan on playing offline then you will want to transfer the licenses:

Thanks for the link, Should I download everything on my new xbox before I do it?

This may be the correct method but you still need your old console and old hard drive which you no longer have. So there probably isn't any way to re-download that content and have it work on your console.

You should probably call tech support and ask if there are any other ways to obtain your licenses but other than that, i think you're totally out of luck on this one. The only reason you need your old console and hard drive are so that you can sync them with the website and download to your new console.

I could be wrong but that's how this system and method work.

From what I saw the other week on Xbox.com you can transfer you're licenses onto you're new 360 HDD by going to the website and clicking the transfer licenses link, and it will take you through the steps to do this. Don't think you need to worry about not having your old HDD or anything as long as you can sign into Live on your 360.

Here is the link to the FAQ on it

Here's the link to the actual process -

So I downloaded the Gears 2 maps I got off my old account ages ago. And when I try and play them on this account it doesn't let me.
